20 of the Best Lyrics From ASAP Mob’s ‘Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy’
Rap may put an emphasis and importance on being a supreme soloists, but the old adage that strength comes in numbers is one that's tried and true when it comes to hip-hop. From the culture's genesis, the focus has always been on crews and collectives, from Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five to the Juice Crew, to Boogie Down Productions and beyond. Although hip-hop has grown and evolved in many ways, the intrigue that surrounds a group of talented individuals in concert with one another remains, which can be attributed to the success of the A$AP Mob, one of the biggest movements in rap at the moment.
Created by founding members A$AP Yams, A$AP Bari and A$AP Illz, the crew, which began as a collective of rappers, record producers, music video directors and fashion designers with similar interests, would gain a national following with the success of A$AP Rocky and his mixtape, Live. Love. A$AP, which earned Rocky and company a distribution deal with Sony Music Entertainment for his A$AP Worldwide brand. Rocky may have been the straw that initially stirred the drink, with multiple hit singles and albums to his belt, but the A$AP Mob is far from a one-man band and has proven to boast a roster full of potential stars.
In 2013, fellow A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg would become the second member of the crew to earn a major label deal, under A$AP Worldwide, Polo Grounds and RCA Records. Members A$AP Nast, A$AP Twelvyy, and A$AP Ant have all built followings for themselves outside of the Mob, which has only helped bolster their reputation as one of the stronger teams in rap.
After releasing Cozy Tapes, Vol. 1, their debut project as a unit, the A$AP Mob are back with their latest offering, Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy, which includes appearances by all members of the Mob, as well as from affiliates like Playboi Carti, Smooky Margiela, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Quavo, Pro Era and Flatbush Zombies all joining in on the fun.
With the project being fresh off the press and already in heavy rotation, XXL thought it was only right to highlight 20 of the best lyrics from Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy. Get comfortable, but don't sleep.
